Police detectives obtained video surveillance from a nearby business, and through their investigation identified the vehicle of interest. That vehicle was seized pursuant to a search warrant on Nov. 7. Investigators continue to process evidence from that vehicle.

Acton Police have been in contact with the family of the victim in an effort to keep them informed of the progress of investigators.
